Notes for the Coming Week – September 23rd to 27th

We have a busy week ahead so here are some notes to help keep our families on track:

  1.  The new HotLunches menu will be open on Sunday, September 22. It will cover the period of Monday, September 30th to Friday, November 1st – a lot of lunches!  Orders must be in by Sunday, September 29 at midnight (no exceptions!).  We are looking at a couple of options for Wednesdays starting in November.
    Reminder – Please pay for your September orders! Any parents who have not yet paid for September will be unable to order for October until their balance is at zero.
    Also – An error was made in the September menu with ordering for Friday, September 27th.  This is a Professional Development Day for staff so there is no school. Parents who ordered for this day will see a refund in their accounts.
  2. Picture Days!
    English Programs – Monday, September 23rd
    French Immersion Programs – Tuesday, September 24th. 
  3. We celebrated International Day of Peace on Thursday.  As a school, we made a pledge for peace and had a whole school picture outside with the support of the Summerside Fire Department.  It is beautiful! It will be posted here soon.

    Enjoy the great weather this weekend!
